Award announcement for Horton International Germany

We were just given the good news that the leading business magazine WirtschaftsWoche has listed Hager Unternehmensberatung, our Horton International partner in Germany, as one of the best personnel consultants in 2020 in their current ranking for the fourth time in a row. Hager Unternehmensberatung was awarded five starts in each of the following six categories “IT, Digitisation, Machinery plant engineering (including industry and metal), Financial Services, Real Estate and Consulting/Professional Services” as the best industry professionals in personnel consulting.


The renowned German business magazine ‘WirtschaftsWoche’ commissioned this study on the personnel consultancy market in collaboration with Christel Gade, professor at the IUBH International University in Bad Honnef and expert in the headhunter industry. Between July and November, around 2,600 personnel decision-makers from German companies filled out the specially created questionnaires and evaluated over 890 personnel consultancies. Among other things, they stated how satisfied they were with various personnel consulting agencies and awarded stars for good or excellent service. This anonymous survey was supported by the DFK (Association for Specialists and Executives) and the BDU (Federal Association of German Management Consultants).

Ralf Hager, founder and managing director of Hager Unternehmensberatung, which specializes in executive search, commented on the award: “We would like to thank our clients and candidates as well as our entire team for this repeated award. This once again reflects our own claim as a sophisticated executive search consultancy.”

The 2020 financial year was heavily influenced by the global pandemic. This was – and still is – noticeable in the willingness of suitable key personnel to change. As a result, high-quality executive search consulting support is imperative for many companies.

“With our 110-strong team and our firmly established process excellence, we are in an excellent position to meet the demands placed on professional executive search consultancies. I am all the more pleased that we have now taken a firm place among the best executive search consultancies in Germany in the exclusive ranking of WirtschaftsWoche,” Ralf Hager sums up.
